Siddaramaiah govt to celebrate  1 year in office after poll results

The Siddaramaiah government, which is completing one year in office on May 13, has no plans to organise any celebrations before the Lok Sabha election results are announced.

Replying to queries from reporters in Bangalore on Thursday, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said the government will celebrate its one year in office after the counting of votes on May 16.

“There is model code of conduct now. We will celebrate after the counting,” he said.

The Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee is not going to hold any event to mark the completion of one year, according to its president G Parameshwara.

When contacted by this newspaper, Parameshwara said, “The task for us is to fulfil the promises we made to the people when we came to power. We have to work towards that. I am not aware what the government is planning.”

He said that AICC general secretary Digivijay Singh, who is in charge of Karnataka affairs of the party, is scheduled to chair the co-ordination committee meeting at 11.30 am on May 14.

Soon after this, the party election manifesto committee headed by A K Antony will hold its meeting to review the progress made by the party in implementing the announcements it had made during the Assembly elections in the State.

The Delhi leaders are expected to be in Bangalore on May 13, Parameshwara said.

The co-ordination committee has been set up to function as a link between the party and the government.

It has held three meetings so far.
